AIRED:

Meg Pryer's lifelong dream is to dance on the iconic 1960's television series, American Bandstand, and along with her adventurous confidante, Roxanne Bojarski, the 15-year-old's persistence pays off when they find themselves on camera, dancing amongst a variety of teen idols. While his younger sister realizes her dreams, J.J. Pryor, questions his own childhood ambitions as he struggles to decide between striving for a Notre Dame football scholarship and making a life-altering change. Family patriarch Jack Pryor, concerned with his children's defiant behavior as well as with wife Helen's influential new friends, watches his idealistic family buckle under the era's social challenges on the eve of the decade's watershed event.
